Search For Apartments Offering Google Fiber

Sick of  the dreaded spinning wheel appearing on your computer screen when trying to download movies, stream music or video chat?

If you are a renter in Kansas City, Provo, or Austin, you can now search for apartments wired (or soon to be wired) with Google Fiber. Google Fiber is said to be 100 times faster than basic broadband offered in the rest of the U.S., with users reporting the ability to download a full movie in less than two minutes. Want high speed Internet in your apartment?

You can use Google Fiber’s Apartment Finder to search for apartments and sign up for the service. If your apartment complex doesn’t yet offer Google Fiber, there is also a link on the site where you can tell Google you want the service. If there is enough interest in a particular apartment building, Google says it will share the results anonymously with your property manager.

Here’s a peak at some of our favorite apartments in Kansas City currently offering Google Fiber.
